told they will do that come monday with a different voice and phrase because they don't want to create any problems with the wildwood. >> as much as all of us in the fire department do what we do, sometimes you're just never prepared for something like that to happen. >> hugs and tears two years after this firefighter rescued a woman from the center city building collapse. today, the last survivor pulled from the rubble and her hero reunite for the first time. six people were killed and four others hurt when the salvation army thrift shop collapsed two years ago today. we spoke with one of the victims still dealing with that tragedy. >> to say my story. >> maria was the last survivor pulled from the rubble. today, for the first time since the disaster she met the fire chief who saved her. >> i don't know if you remember me. >> do not remember. >> i was the fireman who found you. >> very very thank you.

travel from ukraine to visit her. marking this two-year anniversary is bittersweet. >> sometimes it's very difficult to deal with what i have to do. but i am thankful this person saved my life. >> two contractors are awaiting trial right now on multiple counts for that deadly building collapse. they're accused of third-degree murder and other related offenses. a judge denied their request late last year to have separate trials. right now, on our nbc 10 news app, you can read an exclusive story with the first responders at the scene of the center city building collapse. well nice improvements today. little bit warmer than yesterday, little more in the way of sunshine. and this is going to keep building as we go into the weekend. this weekend, we'll be warmer than today, both saturday and sunday look really nice.
and we have more sunshine both days, too. there is a chance part of the area tomorrow could see a few showers. not everybody, but i'll show you that in a second. and then we have thunderstorms ahead in the forecast, too, as we go into next week. live look out at citizen's bank park. we have just about mostly cloudy skies. but they're thin enough to still filter through some sunshine right now. temperatures in the mid-70s in philadelphia. and that's really the warmest we've gotten today. right new in redding, down to 75, 78 degrees, allentown, mid-70s for west chester, 74 glassboro, 74 millville and dover. 60 degrees in stone harbor. over the weekend, though we should be around 70 at the shore. here's the radar, we are dry so if you're heading out this friday evening, i think your plans will be fine. it'll be pretty comfortable, too. only showers close to the area just north of tobyhanna, one shower there, and we'll be watching areas north and west. but we could see some moving later on tonight. most of us will stay dry, though, the moisture out in the atlantic will be staying out in
the atlantic and we'll see improving conditions over the weekend. so here's future weather, clouds hang around as we go through tonight. 11:00 p.m. there's some rain up to the north and west. we'll be watching for that to possibly move in. i don't think it'll make much progress, though. starting off your saturday clouds will be around and through the afternoon hours, that dry air starts to move in developing sunshine from north to south. now, there is a chance we could see a few showers in south jersey and delaware. but that would quickly clear out tomorrow evening, making way to clear skies, and then this leads us into a much sunnier sunday for the area. and temperatures still on the warmer side too. so the weekend really looks nice compared to what we've seen so far this week. for tonight, though mostly cloudy, little mild, 62, philadelphia 51 degrees areas north and west. then tomorrow a chance of showers, south of philadelphia. more sunshine areas north to south. a little warmer too, right around 80 degrees to start your weekend. and if you're heading to the shore the delaware beaches, saturday, mid-70s. we'll see the clouds around.
chance of a shower. by sunday though more sunshine temperatures around 70 degrees. poconos this weekend. mid-70s saturday, more sunshine sunday. with temperatures around 70. farther inland we'll be closer to 80 degrees. starting off monday and tuesday we're in the mid-80s chance of storms and we could be near 90 by the end of next week. >> thanks sheena. nbc 10 and nbc universal are giving away money. it's all to local nonprofit organizations. the project is called 21st century solutions. now the goal here is to support nonprofits that are implementing new and innovative programs. application on our website, nbc 10.com, eligibility requirements are listed there. and the deadline to apply is july 3rd. >> thank you, renee. i'm john clark. coming up we'll hear from a teary eyed philly who has been sent down from the minors. how about a major league pitcher who can throw with both hands?

he was a little goofy. well, yesterday, the giants were at the white house to celebrate the world series championship. hunter was making some faces at president obama. the president made a joke about those hunter pence signs that fans bring to parks. should be interesting to see if any phillies fans have signs for hunter this weekend and if he even plays. nba finals no love for cleveland, and now no irving. he is out three to four months after fracturing his kneecap. ouch. so lebron james' big three is down to just him now. and they lost game one last night. take a look at former sixer andre with the warriors they got the win. iggy loses it here. picked up his shoe here. but the biggest role was guarding lebron james. when iggy was on him, he only made four of his 14 shots. andre said he learned a lesson from former sixer and temple grad mckee on the mentality of
defending a star player. >> mckee when i was a rookie kind of walked me through it because i was guarding a lot of those guys and he said, make it hard for them. the nba is about scoring. talented players. guys are going to score the points. got to get stops. the thing to do is make it hard for them. >> and how rare is this in baseball? you've heard of switch hitters. how about a switch pitcher? the a's called up pat venditte today. and here's the special glove that he uses. his dad taught him to throw am ambidextrous since the age of 3. he cannot switch hands during the at bat. i'm john clark. we're right back.
